Christmas Mail

Even though I have the annual Christmas cold, I’ve been enjoying sending out my Christmas mail. I’ve had one of my paintings made into our Christmas card this year, sent with my art stamps attached. I’ve included some other bits and pieces to my regular mail pals ๐Ÿ™‚

In my mail box this week ๐Ÿ™‚

A lovely holiday postcard from my mail friend Antoni, thanks Antoni for this lovely card, the Guggenheim is a fabulous building!

Postcrossing cards from Dasha in Belarus and Tugce in Turkey,

Moni in Germany and Igor in Russia.

I especially love the stamps from Russia!

I do love it when people take the time to decorate the back of their postcards before sending them.

I got these two postcrossing cards from Hiromi in Japan and Kirsty in USA…


…..and along with their message and beautiful stamps they had added other decoration which adds so much to the enjoyment of receiving the postcard

I try to remember toย decorate the cards I send, but unfortunately here in England the decorative stamp issues are very few and even then usually only stamps that can be used in the uk. I have started to make my own fake art stamps to add to the cards instead.

I would like to get some proper stamp paper to make them more realistic! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m also sending out some thank you’s to my family for a lovely time and lovely presents last weekend. Our belated Christmas time together.


These are a result of spending a lot of time drawing because of a virus that just doesn’t want to go!
